21. Yes. Lifting them out of poverty is integral.

 

But that is true of everybody.

But when as a black oerson you are more likely to go to jail, you don't get that 15 bucks an hour, then you won't get hired. All of the economic gains are limited by the terrible social justice issues we have. Our portion will not be fair since our mother are more likely to be raising us singly since our fathers are in jail. We pay more traffic fines and fees because cops follow us to get us to make a mistake. Every portion of our lives has a dark shadow. So when they say that money will solve it, we say we won't even get our fair share of the money. We never do. In order for us to fully participate, we need legislation addressing the sentencing duspartties, they way we are followed and harassed, addressing the fact the forty percent if prisoners are black, addressing the all white juries and judges and prosecutors. If we don't get that first, we won't get our full share. Because there are so many ways to leave so many of us out.
